Tigers can be found in India in the southeast of Asia and the extreme east of Russia (Siberia). The fur they wear is striped and serves to disguise their habitat of grassy long grasses as well as wooded areas where they hunt on their own at night. Their skin is not exactly the same as that of the previous and there are no tigers with the same stripes.
The tiger is classified as Endanered on the IUCN Red List. The population of wild tigers worldwide is estimated at between 3,062 to 3,948 mature individuals. The majority of these animals are found in areas that are isolated. India is home to the largest tiger population. Habitat loss, habitat fragmentation, and poaching are major causes for the decline of the numbers. Conflict between humans and wild animals is a significant issue for tigers. It is particularly in those areas that have a high density of humans.
